The change that was to be the Obama administration gets further and further away when facing the realities of the political climate of the corpocracy. And so now, with word coming out that Obama is reversing his position on releasing detainee photos, they've become almost as inconsistent as the previous administration. Well, I mean, the previous administration did suck in a consistent fashion but other than that....
What we never will see are the videotapes out Abu Ghraib showing children being sodomized in front of their mothers, some perv at the Pentagon has that tape and probably needs it to discharge purity of essence. What did we get from all the abuse we heaped on Muslims? According to one ex-FBI agent, not a fucking thing.
The abuses that occurred under America's auspices need to be dealt with in a punitive matter. Laws were broken, treaties (among other things) were violated, and until we locate and punish those who authorized it, this will never go away. Sweeping it under a rug will just allow this to fester, and if the Democrats are just as responsible for letting this go on, then we need to dispose of them as well.
The United States is a nation of laws. We can not throw a man in prison for twenty five years for possessing marijuana because he is poor and black then turn our eyes to real and heinous crimes such as have been perpetrated by our own government in our name because the guys who did it are rich white and powerful. Equal justice under the law is a constitutional right under the law, and if we don't punish those who ordered the law breaking, then we might as well open up our prisons and let every other criminal out as well.
